Low Flying…..

Posted by mervfrench on August 25, 2009

I had a job shooting the Targa Rally on the weekend which was something different. A wide variety of cars  competing on tarmac and not dirt around the out skirts of the metro area. The eventual winner in the modern comp class was a Nissan GTR driven by Steve Jones  ( Warren Jones , Bondys right hand man in the eighties was his father ) Now there were 2 of these cars in the rally and they were streets ahead of their class rivals  because they almost fly. I’ve never seen one of these racing before but man do they go.

Sat. was a rather difficult day as it rained all day. Trying to hold an umbrella in one hand ,  and a camera with a 70-200 in the other ,  and shoot cars flying past doesn’t give a big hit rate ,  but anyway here’s a couple of shots of these two cars.

“Are we having any fun yet”

Posted by mervfrench on August 8, 2009

A few shots from last weeks Avon Decent, looks like everyone is having a ball…not.

The water level was a bit lower this year compared to the last couple with last year being at almost record highs.

The Channel 7 heli pilot got into the spirit of things when he took off from next to us.  He must have pulled and twisted every handle he had hold of , that’s a technical term for the laymen amongst you. When he went  he really went up up away  as fast as I’ve seen a chopper get up and go.

This event could be just the thing for international man of mystery and adventure  Mark Stothard.
